Hello Everyone, my last post was a bit serious, so it is time for something more engaging – Nathan Finger’s Bird Of The Week. My True Love normally gets a weekly email from Nathan. He has been sharing it with me as he has been working from home. I’ve discovered that all the info in the email is also included on Nathan’s blog. Nathan’s post this week is on wrens from across the world. It’s beaut. Entertaining and informative. Check it out.

Bird of the Week

Could this be the last week of lockdown? Who can say? Either way, while we keep holding down the lock your double weekly dose of birdie thoughts and feelings keeps circling like a Vulture in an updraft. 

Anyway, readers who have been with me for a while may remember the numerous Wrens we’ve featured. There was Lyall’s Wren, the Superb Fairywren, the Malle Emu-wren and the Musician Wren.

        These are extraordinary times, let’s not be hard upon ourselves.
        I am so glad you thought about me. After reading Nathan’s post I checked to find where this bird can be seen in India.

    1. They are gorgeous.
      Irene, I just did a short post for the lens-artists, so it contains a mix of photos. I wasn’t sure whether it was specific enough for macro-photography so I didn’t link to your challenge. I’ve got lots of photos for future weeks though.
